1 Field Squadron Workshop
South Vietnam 1967-1968

This video was produced and edited by WO1 (Retd) Mick Leonard who was a Cpl Elec with 1 Fd Sqn Wksp. during the deployment of 1 Fd Sqn RAE to SVN in 1967/68.  Narrated by COL John Kemp AM (Retd) who was the OC 1 Fd Sqn RAE during the deployment, the video is a tribute to the untiring efforts of the workshop personnel in support of the engineer operations

In accordance with the RAEME doctrine, the wksp was an integral part of the Fd Sqn to provide repair and recovery support under all conditions and to fight and defend their area of operations whether on wksp tasks or wider operations of the squadron group.

There is some amazing footage of the conditions under which the wksp was forced to operate, both within the Task Force base and when deployed on offensive operations.
